    The interview process itself wasn't too nerve-racking, I received a call and came in for the interview. I was interviewed by the supervisor for about 20 minutes and then given a brief overview of what the position entailed and what I had to do.

    Outbound Sales Representative Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrenceville, GA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Lawrenceville, GA
    Application Details

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sage North America in March 2011.

    Interview Details

    Recruiter was very helpful and supportive. The interview was with 2 managers and we seemed to connect very well. The follow-up interview was with the Sales Director which was the most unique interview I've had because of his interest on the why behind what I do. He was not interested on the technical skills but more about the philosophy and approach to selling.

    Interactive Designer Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Lawrenceville, GA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 weeksinterviewed at Sage North America in October 2010.

    Interview Details

    I received an email from HR to setup a phone interview with her. The phone interview was only with the recruiter. A couple days later, I went in for an actual interview. I was greeted by a team member. She was nice- i noticed the cool colors of the company, which stood out to me-along with the casual dress code, which also appealed. She walked me to about 3 other team member who were awaiting my presence.They gave me some info on the company, what would be my job, and also working with team. They told me all the perks and that they were allowed to telecommute once a week. I then had a 1 on 1 with the "potential boss". This interview was still pretty easy. I then met up with his counter part who I would work with, but he seemed a bit intimidated by my skills- as if I was after his job. He also tried to trip me up asking wierd questions that really didn have anything to do what the job that I was seeking. More personal questions to basically have an excuse to weed me out. Mind you, this woud have not been my boss...just a cross team leader- who I would help with on projects here and there. You know if you dont have a certain look- your automatic disqaulified. I saw who they hired- complete opposite of me.

    Applications Developer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Tampa, FL
    Application Details

    The process took a dayinterviewed at Sage North America in August 2010.

    Interview Details

    Initial HR guy called me and we did the usual meet and greet. Scheduled a phone screen call with 3 other folks: A director and two managers.

    Each asked questions in turn, each with a specific topic: OO Concepts, DB Concepts, and Project Management/Team concepts.

    OO Concept questions were such like "Describe polymorphism", and "What is inheritance". Many more questions along these lines.

    DB Concepts: "What are primary and foreign keys used for" and "What is the purposes of indices in databases?" etc, etc.

    PM/Team concepts: "Describe your understanding of Scrum". And so on.

    The group/Panel interview was much different. I went to their location, and they discussed a recent project that I had worked on. This discussion essentially broke down the project so that they could understand how it was architected. They neatly (and respectfully) picked apart every single aspect of the project, asking questions and challenging ideas.

    After that, they had me use a greaseboard to demonstrate any piece of that project that I worked on and was proud of. This was further analyzed and questioned.

    Finally, there was a challenge in which they wiped the greaseboard clean, and presented me with a simple problem to solve. I was given a simple input and output requirement, and told not to use any existing libraries that I know of but to solve it using logic and pseudocode. This was again analyzed.

    The panel interview was grueling, highly technical, and detailed. They expertly identified where I was weak and where I was strong, but they treated me with dignity and respect.

    I advise others to be absolutely candid and honest. Be prepared to go very, very in depth with your knowledge. Do not bluff these people. Read the requirements carefully, if you are not qualified, don't waste theirs or your time - they will examine you thoroughly and accurately.

    I applied in-person. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sage North America in May 2010.

    Interview Details

    The process was very haphazard for such a large organization. The interview was conducted by 2 very young, non-HR people, and it was not very professional.

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Sage North America in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    The process started with a phone interview with HR. That went really well and the HR rep was very personable. The one on one interview took place with the sales manager. I was left waiting as he conducted a meeting with his sales staff. It started off with small chit chat, but turned formal with every cliche interview question imaginable. It got to the point that I just wanted it to be over. Many of the questions were just so germaine and nonsense.
